iSideWith.com

That site says that my state (KS) is 50% Obama. I know for a fact that is not true. This state bleeds red and Romney will win at least 60% of the vote here. Neither candidate is going to campaign here because they already know Romney will win.

Gary Johnson is on the KS ballot, so Romney may come in at only 53%.

Not a chance. Libertarian candidate is always on the ballot here. Never takes more than 1-2%. State has gone red since Eisenhower if I remember correctly. Since 1980, Dukakis is the only Dem to get more than 40% and every Republican has taken 55% or more except the year Perot ran and jacked things up for everyone. Obama has no hope of winning KS and Romney has no fear of losing it.

The 3rd party candidate Perot received 27% of the Kansas vote. Obama is polling at about 30%, I wouldn't be surprised if Bishop Romney receives only the mid-50%.

Yeah, that was Perot. He got that much vote everywhere.

I got 92% Romney which is bizarre because I disagree with him on so many things.

Per United States presidential election, 1992 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Perot received ~19%

Per Election Forecasts - FiveThirtyEight Blog - NYTimes.com Obama 51%, but final outcome will be determined by how the vote is counted
